The importance of installing the right passive fire protection

People safety first, then property

Fire safety measures are all about keeping people safe. In the case of a fire, passive fire measures should offer people protection from contact with high-temperature surfaces. They also assist fire-fighters as they move to control a fire.

Why fire-safe compliance is essential

Passive fire protection measures are essential to reduce heat transfer and limit the spread of a fire and to protect assets. These include service penetrations, such as ductwork, plumbing and air conditioning pipes. By containing the damage, passive fire measures help limit the cost of repairs and rebuild.

What you must do to be compliant?

  • The National Construction Code (NCC) specifies that all insulation used in pipes, ductwork systems, and vessels include safe levels of non-combustibility.
  • Check with our expert technical team to ensure you’re specifying within the latest regulations.
